2 for 1 at Wilkes Head

The Wilkes Head is a traditional family run country inn situated just off the A29 at Eastergate, West Sussex, tucked away down a quiet country lane.

The Wilkes" is a quaint historic Grade II Listed Building with original features - in the flag stone floored main bar the large inglenook fireplace greets you with a roaring log fire, all day, every day through the cooler months. In warmer weather many can enjoy a drink in the pretty garden which has a stream running through or dine al fresco in the sunshine.

A good selection of traditional pub food and homemade specials is available every day with lunch served 12 noon till 2.30 pm and dinner 6.30 - 8.30 pm.

In addition, there is a wide range of real ales to choose from along with a selection of beers, wines and spirits to perfectly complement your meal.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not valid during Sunday lunch service as there is no A La Carte menu available.

    This was our second visit for lunch with friends while visiting the area. The choice was extremely good from both the menu and specials board. Our food arrived quickly with good size portions. The staff were very efficient and friendly and the dining area clean and comfortable. We all enjoyed our visit very much and will definitely be returning when in the area. "

    We went as a group of four to celebrate our anniversary. The menu was quite varied. There were a couple of items that were not included in the deal due to the cost (sirloin steak & sea bass) this was a shame as I was looking forward to the steak. However this was made clear at the start. The team there were extremely friendly throughout & made us very welcome. The bar area was lovely with a roaring fire; the eating area was in an adjacent room. The food was superbly cooked & plenty of it. Just one small critique from the ladies that the chicken melt would be better with a bit more sauce although it was proper chicken & cooked well. It was our first time using the tastecard & we were very pleased. "

    Excellent food & beers - service, venue and facilities could not be faulted. After 2 trips to the local Brewers Fayre on our holidays it was fantastic to find somewhere where the food was home cooked. We couldn't believe that we paid less at the end of the night than we had the previous two nights & we had puddings and more drinks. We phoned ahead by all of 20 minutes before arriving as we were on a day trip to Chichester and the table was reserved waiting for us.

    We would definitely recommend the Wilkes Head and will certainly return when we are next in the area. "

    Tonight (Monday) was our second visit to the Wilkes Head and sadly this time we were not allowed as tastecard holders, "to sample the selection of dishes including homemade chicken or vegetable curry served with rice, poppadoms & mango chutney or grilled sea bass fillet with your choice of chips & salad or new potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables" or anything from the board, the choice was very limited all be it fresh, hot and tasty. The service was again excellent. "

    This was our first experience using our tastecard and if all eateries accepting tastecards are as good as this we will be very happy.

    We telephoned with only 25mins to go before the end of the lunchtime service and were told it wasn't a problem, we arrived approx 20mins later into a busy bar to find a table had been reserved for us next to a very welcome fire. We only had to wait for as long as it took to cook our food. The staff were very friendly, they served a good pint of Guinness and the food was excellent (make sure you're hungry though as the portions are large).

    We will definitely use The Wilkes Head again. "
